“Dog walking is no job - it's a passion!”

Hi there! I have been walking dogs in Hoboken, NJ for over 3 years now, which I absolutely love! I have had an endearing love for dogs since 2001 when my parents finally gave into the many pleas of my two younger brothers and I to get us a dog. We were introduced to Tiki, a magnificent Black Labrador, who became the sister we never had.

I doubt you're ever gonna find anyone who loves dogs more than I do. I've lived with dogs my whole life, walked at least 100 of my friends dogs, read dog books, volunteered at the Humane society in Hawaii, donate to ASPCA monthly, and just love them like crazy. I'm used to walking between 35.000 to 45.000 steps a day and can't wait to start walking your little one.

I was raised on a farm in California, and I have been around dogs since I was a very young child. I have cared for dogs both professionally and for family, roommates and neighbors. I LOVE dogs, and I think they can sense when they meet a dog lover, which probably explains why they tend to love me as much as I love them. I look forward to spending time with your furry friend!

Hi there. My name is Dan. I go to school at GW, and I'm looking to walk some local pooches to help pay for school. I'm new to the world of professional pet care, but I'm no stranger to caring for dogs. I have a basset hound mix named Bon Bon back home (who I miss like crazy) that I've loved and cared for the past 8 years. I've also had experience sitting and walking dogs for neighbors and relatives. I look forward to getting out to meet some new pups and brighten their days.

I'm great with dogs! I've walked and dog sat for friends and family over the years and volunteered in animal shelters, and want to pass on my experience and love to your dog. I'll make sure your dog has a fun walk, and gets his or her, ahem, 'business' done. I'm sure I'll love your dog and they'll love me (but if they don't, no worries, they're still a good dog)!

Dog Boarding in Manhattan

The bustling streets of Manhattan are filled with both homeless people and homeless pets. To help combat animal homelessness in Manhattan, New York, a few dedicated animal shelters provide a temporary home, food, and healthcare to hundreds of animals every year.

Bideawee is one of America’s first no-kill animal shelters. When the shelter opened in 1903, the mission of the founder was to prevent animals from being unnecessarily euthanized while at shelters. By 1906, the rescue was officially incorporated as a non-profit organization. Bideawee cares for thousands of animals every year and relies on fundraising, donations, and adoption fees to continue to care for homeless animals. With a matchmaking service, Bideawee helps potential pet owners find the perfect pet for their lifestyle. The shelter also runs a dog park for members.

Animal Care Centers of NYC takes in more than 35,000 animals each year. Since the organization never turns away an animal in need, the shelter has cared for cats, dogs, reptiles, rabbits, birds, small mammals, farm animals, and wild animals. It is the only non-profit organization to care for such a wide array of animals in the NYC area. The organization’s mission is to end animal homelessness in NYC, which is a huge task. The shelter currently has more than 200 animals in its care.

If you live in the Manhattan, New York, area and are looking for a new furry creature to bring into your home, consider visiting one of these animal shelters to find your new companion.
